Have a holly, jolly holiday with the help of Jolly Pumpkin Pizzeria and Brewery! From apparel and dog collars to seasonal beer and catering capabilities, the Midtown restaurant and brewery has everything it takes to please sour beer fans this winter season.
Gift givers can stop by the Detroit restaurant, located at 441 W. Canfield St. to choose from an assortment of Jolly Pumpkin-branded apparel, glassware, trinkets and more. New t-shirts, sweatshirts and thermal tops, donning the Jolly Pumpkin Pizzeria and Brewery name with the Detroit skyline behind it are available in men’s and women’s sizes, starting at $24.

And, if Fido and Fluffy are Jolly Pumpkin fans too, pick up a Jolly Pumpkin Artisan Ales pet collar or bandana suitable for both canine and feline fans alike. Collars are available in both small and large sizes for just $12 and bandanas for $11.

“The Jolly Pumpkin brand has built an incredibly loyal following,” said Shelby Oberstaedt, general manager of Jolly Pumpkin Pizzeria and Brewery. “Fans love the beer and aren’t afraid to show it. We have a variety of gifts sure to be on any sour ale fan’s wish list - and of course, don’t forget the beer! Noel de Calabaza is now available on tap and in bottles.”

Noel de Calabaza is a seasonal beer enriched with flavorful hints of figs, raisins, sugar plums, cashews and rum laden truffles. Sour ale drinkers can stop by the Detroit location for a taste of it on tap, or to pick up a 750 ml bottle to take home and enjoy. Also available in store are Jolly Pumpkin tulip glasses for $9 and branded bottle openers for $6. Diehard fans can even pick up a Jolly Pumpkin tap handle to use at home or to display as decoration for $35.

Still not sure what to get the Jolly Pumpkin Artisan Ales sour ale fan in your life? Oberstaedt suggests gift cards. As an added bonus for every $50 purchased in gift cards, patrons will receive a 2016 coupon book complete with one discount per month and valued at $75 in savings. Coupon books are available until supplies run out, and discounts are valid at the Midtown restaurant only.

“We’re grateful to the patrons who have supported our restaurant since our opening last April, and our gift card promotion is one way we can give back. We’re also excited about new catering capabilities,” Oberstaedt added.
